Assessment Payments

How do I pay my assessment?

After you have logged in click on the “Payment” tab – you can pay online or setup a recurring payment, you can also pay by check by mailing a check payable to your Association c/o the Forth Group, P.O. BOX 7716, Carol Stream, IL 60197-7716 (checks must include your account number – available on the Owner Portal online- under the “payments tab” or you can call us). You can also drop off a check at our office; the “Contact” tab above has our address and a location map.

How can I check the balance on my account?

Login and click on the “Payment” tab – it will show your payment history and charges, if you have questions about your account call customer service 312-379-0400 option 2.

My automated payment was reversed or rejected, or says it has the wrong name, what happened?

Most times if payments are rejected it is a typo in either the routing or account numbers or the names on the account. You have to show the name on the account the same way it is shown at the bank. After you have tried to correct this and are still having trouble please contact us and we can contact the bank to see what may have happened.

I have an automatic withdrawal setup, but I am still getting a reminder for and overdue balance. Shouldn’t the auto payment take care of this?

Sometimes Owners forget they have incurred a charge for garage openers, keys, past late fees…etc. and carry a small balance. Automated payments are only setup by Owners in a specific amount and will not vary. If you incur an additional charge you will have to make an additional payment to pay your account in full.

Should I make my check payable to my Association or to Forth Group?

All payments must be made payable to your Association – please do not make checks payable to Forth Group.

The automatic bill pay through my Bank says that my assessment payment has been processed, but I still received a reminder/overdue balance notice.

Many times Owners confuse that the “transaction has been processed” with the transaction has been “completed”. Bank and bill payment services will process and mail a check; the check is then received at the Association lockbox and processed into your association account. This process takes time for both banks to process the checks and the check to travel in the mail. If you need to make an immediate payment you have to login to the Owner Portal and create an electronic payment under the “Payment Tab”.

Repairs & Maintenance

I need a repair done in my condo, can you help?

The Association typically does not do repairs inside of a condo as that is your private property and part of what Owners are responsible for. Property Managers can recommend vendors that can help out Owners that needs services.
